It was certainly interesting to learn about Lyndon Johnson. I think it’s important to know about our presidents and their impact. This movie just felt like a bit of a history lesson and it didn’t really leave me with anything impactful. It was fairly flat emotionally, and at the end I just kept thinking “okay so what exactly was the point of that movie?” I’m glad I saw it for the information about LBJ, but a documentary would have done the same thing.

Kelvin Says Hats On:

Recently saw “LBJ: Of Vice and Men.” Conclusion: 5/10. As far as biopics go, this is about as conventional and bland as they come. It’s not actively bad, it’s just uninspired and forgettable. Director Rob Reiner (Misery, A Few Good Men, The Princess Bride) has sunken into the doldrums of late and the movie certainly feels like he’s searching for something that never materializes. I think the issue is that the movie can’t really nail down what it wants to say about LJB, so it presents itself more like a history book. Woody Harrelson has been on a bit of a roll this year, but I don’t think the movie gives him much room to explore his character. Jennifer Jason Leigh’s makeup as Lady Bird Johnson was distracting and the whole movie looks a bit cheaply produced. It’s really just forgettable in almost every way – not something I often say about a movie. #LadyTurd #ActLinesMatter #TheViceIsRight #UnPresidented #BulletTogether
